After writing a prompt for a paper based on one of Eric’s books, I decided to google it and found this.  You can buy a term paper on Murdering McKinley for $20.95 per page; rather steep, I thought, but then graduate-level papers are even more.  My prompt is quite different than the one offered by the site, but the company will write a paper to fit the assignment if necessary.  I wonder what Eric would charge.

Every quarter I refer at least one student to judicial affairs for this sort of thing.  But the plagiarism-industrial complex is getting so sophisticated that it’s harder and harder to outwit the cheaters.
